Vegan cabbage rolls with potato dumplings | Vegan, festive, Christmas
Vegan cabbage rolls for a vegan Christmas that won’t leave anyone wanting. Delicious, healthy and festive.
A few years ago, that would have been totally unimaginable … vegan Christmas. Classic dishes like roasts or roulades characterized the holidays. In the meantime, we know … what nonsense. Because everything is also vegan!
What’s on the table for you at Christmas? This year I have vegan cabbage rolls with potato dumplings.
Hmm so delicious. The cabbage rolls are stuffed with a spicy filling of soy, leek, and mushrooms and the vegan rolls are accompanied by delicious red cabbage, homemade potato dumplings, and a brown sauce.
How to go:
Find the recipe video here: vegane cabbage rolls
- Roulades: 7-8
- 1 cabbage
- 80 g soy granules
- 100 g mushrooms
- 1 tbs mustard
- ½ stick leek
- spices like: chili, smoked paprika, salt, bell pepper
- oil for frying
- optional: garlic
- For the dumplings:
- 650 g potatoes
- 100 g potato flour
- salt to taste
- 1 pinch of nutmeg
- Steam cabbage in a water bath until tender. Then separate individual leaves for the roulades.
- Cover soy granules with vegetable broth and leave to swell for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, wash the leeks, clean the mushrooms and chop everything very finely.
- Heat oil in a pan, fry leek for 1 minute, add mushrooms, and fry until done. Add soy granules and season with mustard and spices.
- Divide the filling between the 7-8 cabbage leaves, wrap it like a burrito and fry it briefly on both sides in a pan with a little oil.
- For the dumplings:
- Boil potatoes with skin on until done. Drain, let cool, and then peel. Mash with a fork or potato masher. Add remaining ingredients and form into small potato dumplings.
- Meanwhile, bring water and enough salt to boil in a large pot, reducing heat.
- Carefully, place dumplings in simmering water until they rise to the surface. Remove from water with a skimmer. Serve with roulades, red cabbage, and gravy.
When I have leftovers from the cabbage, I like to fry it with leftovers from the filling and lots of mustard in a pan.
This tastes not only the vegans but everyone who sits at the table on Christmas Eve. Give it a try 🙂 If you can’t or don’t want to convince your family of a vegan Christmas quite yet, you can do both. Classic roulades for those who want it traditional and vegan cabbage roulades for those who want to do without meat at Christmas.
I wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas season and reflective days.
